Bill Gates: Restaurant closes to receive him and only orders soda pop

Spanish chef and Masterchef judge, Jordi Cruztold a curious anecdote that he had with Bill Gatesco-founder of Microsoft and one of the most powerful men on the planet.

In conversations with ‘Planeta Calleja’, the chef pointed out that Gates visited one of his famous restaurants called. ABaCwhich has three Michelin stars. When he arrived, he only ordered a soda.


Jordi Cruz points out that he closed the entire restaurant to make Gates – and his 25 escorts – feel more comfortable.

However, already on the premises, Gates “ordered a light cola and went to catch his plane.”

“We had prepared the best dishes for him to eat,” Cruz refers to the media. “Do you think you have to close a good place to come and have a cola?”.

“There are people who have money, who are a little fed up with everything and value it less,” the chef finished.
